Review of Laila at the Bridge (2018)

Moving picture, 96 minutes

Seen in 2018.

Laila Haidari battling heroin addiction in Afghanistan, convinced that the government institutions that should be helping her are corrupted by the industry.

Incoherently told, but Haidari’s abrasive personality is allowed to shine through. No wonder she is almost murdered. An interesting study of grass-roots social work under terrible conditions.
